WISe Symposium


In late July Nate and Danijela headed to Yakima, Washington for the Wrap with Intensive Services (WISe) Symposium.  The WISe Symposium:  Networking to Build Strenghts was hosted by the State of Washington Department of Social and Health Services.  It was the state’s first coordinated event that brought together WISe stakeholders from across the state.  Over the past few years, our team has been working to support the use of CANS and TCOM in the statewide implementation of WISe, and had the honor of being invited to present on the CANS in WISe.

Their presentation, CANS in WISe: Empowering Youth and Family Voices, was an interactive presentation that walked through 3 applications of the CANS to working together with families and youth in WISe.

  1. Using the CANS to organize family and youth stories to amplify family and youth voice.
  2. Using CANS ratings for individualized planning-a full walk through.
  3. Using profiles of CANS ratings to identify and grow sustainable success in the community.

There was more emphasis in these comments on building understanding across providers in different levels of care (such as CLIP) and other child-serving systems (such as Juvenile Justice).
  • One comment simply indicated that the information was helpful for the person’s role as a contract manager and that no immediate follow-up was needed.

One thought on “WISe Symposium

  1. This was really nice work, especially the “rating patterns” and the three profiles of “Trauma Affected Mood,” “Angry Impulsivity,” & “Psychosis.” These Patterns have the ability to organize an approach to the data, and to follow up actions that the system can take to address their needs. It’ll be interesting to see how the system adjusts to addressing these ‘types.’
